We still have this lovely bowl with the three round glass feet. So unique. And if memory serves us correctly, it was very reasonably acquired. Our secret: we always doubled our retail selling price. It’s a common retail practice, but we must admit we priced this beauty – not based on price but on “value.” It was our way of preserving an item we personally valued as “priceless.” It never sold. Lucky….for us.
PLATEAU, gold, with marbleized circle glass insert. Turns for convenience. Wonderful for center of dining table. Particularly great if placed on top of a riser or base so as to provide height. (Pics shown) It’s a pretty piece and provides great function for those hard to reach items in the center of the table or very useful for a flower centerpiece that you wish to showcase.

7″ x 4″ x 2″, a lovely size for sherry. Very ornate pressed glass. Check out the detail in our pics. We love these small Decanters. Have you filled a larger decanter with your favorite cordial, only to discover later that you need to move it to a smaller vessel. How many times will it take to discover that cordials are prettier in petite container. This one is just adorable. Stopper is just ever so slightly dinged. Nevertheless less we think worth it’s price. Enjoy!
